Southern Evangelical Seminary Discusses ‘Wokism’ at Upcoming Livestream ‘Awaken’ Event

SES Opens the Floor for Biblical Conversations about Racism, Reform, Social Justice and More

August 2, 2021

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Are you “woke” or awake? In our polarized and confused culture, how do Americans navigate the competing and contradictory messages regarding racism, racial reconciliation, and social justice?

These are the questions that Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, will discuss and more at the upcoming “Awaken” Event on August 7th, from 1:00pm-5:00pm ET. The “Awaken” livestream will examine the issues surrounding systemic racism in America, police violence and people of color, the nature of true social justice, and how someone can escape wokism.

Judge Phil Ginn, President of SES, stated, “It is imperative, if we are to love our neighbors as ourselves, that Christians are equipped to think well about the issues of wokism, social justice, and racial reconciliation. That’s what we at SES are hoping this ‘Awaken’ Event will do for Christians across America: empower them to seek the truth within all the noise of our culture.”

The “Awaken” Event will cover topics such as “Is America Systemically Racist?”, “What is the Real Meaning of Social Justice?”, and “How Does Someone Awaken from Wokism?” with speakers such as SES President Judge Phil Ginn, former police officer Eric Muldrow, and Center for Biblical Unity representative Monique Duson.

The “Awaken” Event will attempt to humbly discuss these ideas and seek truth for the sake of the Gospel. To learn more about this livestream event and reserve tickets, click here.

The mission of SES is to train men and women, based on the inerrant and infallible written Word of God, for the evangelization of the world and defense of the historic Christian faith. SES offers the 15-hour Certificate in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE).SES believes that one must minister to the present generation according to its needs—and to do so with truth and power. Students need training in the ethical, political and economic implications of the unchanging Faith “once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). The PPE can also be used as a concentration within most master’s degrees (excluding Master of Arts in Religion).The combination of PPE training and classical seminary education can be a potent one in combating the new heresies and false doctrines rooted in a secularist, progressivist worldview.
